ppl that like robbie confuse me
i’m sure he has some deep psychological issues to feel threatened by a 12 year old boy but c’mon that’s no excuse
In wondering how things are going to progress in season 2, I’ve been thinking about why Robbie is such a jackass around Dipper. The thing is, when you think about it, he has good reason to feel threatened. Dipper is clearly a hell of a lot smarter than he is, despite being younger. I think he also resents how quickly Dipper befriended Wendy, as well as the fact that (in Robbie’s eyes, at least as far as we know) he impressed Wendy by “defeating” the ghosts in the Dusk 2 Dawn, while Robbie did all of diddly squat.
This is a guy that’s liked this girl for years (as has been verified by Alex Hirsch), but he’s been too afraid and socially awkward to really do anything about it up until now. He’s been unable to make any kind of a real impression on her (mainly because he doesn’t seem to realize that acting distant and apathetic not only doesn’t make you “cool”, but it also alienates you, because you come off as hostile and unapproachable). Meanwhile, this kid suddenly comes out of nowhere, and makes a big impression on her in a very short period of time, while also making an idiot of him on multiple occasions (not like it really takes a lot of effort, since Robbie already does a pretty good job of making an idiot out of himself). Honestly, it almost seems like Dipper’s presence is what pushed Robbie into finally doing something about his feelings, even though he has since made such catastrophically stupid decisions out of fear and panic along the way.
While Dipper is also very self-conscious, he’s still a lot more confident than Robbie is (real confidence - not the false kind that Robbie uses to mask his insecurities). Everything Robbie tries to be seems little more than a false front to impress other people. Even though Dipper wants badly to impress Wendy, he still remains true to himself. Dipper is a more genuine, down-to-earth person, while Robbie seems to live in a land of perpetual misery that he puts himself in simply because he can’t just drop the “cool” act, and actually be himself. Dipper is liked by all of Robbie’s friends (including Wendy) for just being himself. Meanwhile, Robbie tries way too hard to be “cool”, and still doesn’t get as much respect from them as Dipper does. I think that’s why Robbie acts like such an assclown.
It’s like watching a dumb animal try to swim across whitewater rapids and nearly drown itself, instead of walking across on the rock bridge five feet away.
Both Wendy’s and Robbie’s Room is shown. Wendy’s is the night shot you may have seen before while Robbie’s is a dark dank pit of a room. Messy with a blacklight. On a pillow on his bed, written in invisible ink, it says “In the rain, tears can’t be seen” and has Wendy’s name as well.
i’m like halfway between laugh-sobbing and real sobbing
^ “In the rain, tears can’t be seen”
^ “Leave me alone”? The only other word I can decipher here is “Don’t”.
Who does he want to leave him alone? Plus, there seem to be two arrows above it, but what are they meant to be pointing at? Both pillows are also adorned with a few other random symbols.
Also, the ties to the dead/undead keep piling up, what with his coffin-shaped bookshelf (wait…he can actually read?), and the skull that sits upon said bookshelf.
It’s hard to tell if there’s anything else particularly noteworthy about this screencap, except that Captain Muppet Face needs to learn how to clean his room.
Anonymous: I managed to find my way into an interesting Skype conversation. In which everyone in it seems to think i'm some kind of Living Klondike bar. I don't know how to feel about this. #Notsureifhighornot
Did you say…Klondike bar?
tigerdude51087: okay, to address the elephant in the room: what exactly is the deal with robbiecat? like, a joke you made with a friend or something?
I went over the genesis of the GravityKittens in this post.
Basically, yes - it’s a silly idea that kept gaining momentum.
thewolfjerk: *flies in on a flying carpet* YOUR MAJESTY, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS AND THEIR MINIONS, HAVE SEIZED THE ISLAND OF MTNDEW AND KLONDIKE BARS! IT IS WRITTEN, ONLY VIPERPONE AND THE SMELLY CAT CAN DEFEAT THEM. Of course, they will be paid well for their service in mtndew and klondike bars. (just thought you'd like a fun message for a break :3 )
Something tells me the kitten is not interested in doing battle…
robomorons: We all know about death threats, but have you ever gotten a depth threat?
